The Disturbingly Kinky History Of Video Games

This mind-bending little animation is supposed to be an intro to a German documentary about the history of video games... After watching it the whole way through - and gazing in confused disbelief at the last few seconds - I'm pretty sure someone got their definition of 'documentary' wrong. This looks like the intro to a retro gamer porno. Which begs the question: why hasn't anyone thought of this before? 

So... ya. What do you think? Via Kotaku.

Beard Yourself

If you have a beard or any other type of facial hair configuration, you will instantly relate to this magnificent tribute to the legendary chin curtain. If you don't have a beard, you will want one after watching this music video. Apart from a fact that it centers on a topic that is close to our hearts (and mouths), it's also not such a bad song either. Catchy, y'know?

Share with all your furry friends! Have a hairy Friday! Via The Chive.

The Biological Advantage Of Being Awestruck

The word 'awesome' is thrown around a lot these days. I'm not complaining, I'm as guilty of it as the next person - if not more. In my world, anything from a piece of music to today's weather could be considered awesome. That being said, this video is actually awesome - even though it seems as if the narrator's taken one too many motivational seminars.

Mainline the whole of time? Sounds intense bro. I found this video on a site called Upworthy, which is filled with awesome sharable content. I definitely recommend.

Monday Funny: GIF Sound

A wise man (@Oolex) once said, "'tis better to GIF than to receive". Or something like that. Anyway, I agree. Whereas - in times prior to the Internet - we would send each other postcards or roses or gift baskets as tokens of goodwill, these days it's a lot easier to just hit up Fuck Yeah Reactions and pick a GIF to suit the occasion. The video below has taken some relatively well known GIFs and put audio to them. Now, that might not sound like a big deal, but honestly, it multiplies the funniness x10. At least. Even dubstep cat shows face! Go ahead, laugh your Monday away.

The best part? You can make your own audio GIFs at GIF Sound, and it's super easy too. Big thanks to @richardkuiper for sharing this!

Song Of The Week: Zach Heckendorf - Forgot About Dre

I discovered this song by extremely happy accident. I was trawling through YouTube looking for the original music video for Forgot About Dre (by Dr Dre and Eminem) and came across this new and improved version by mistake. Honestly, this is one of the coolest things I've heard ever. Think: gangsta rap meets folk.


A quick look through the other videos on Zach Heckendorf's YouTube channel and you can tell that the guy has major talent. Now subscribed. Remember to check Song Of The Week regularly or run the risk of missing out on gems like this one.

Bad Lip Reading: Edward and Bella

This is one of the funniest things I've ever seen for sure. It's just so delightfully random. If you'd like to see what Twilight would sound like with its audio replaced with hilarious, non-sensical one liners, then watch the video below. The funniest part is, it's not even that much worse than the actual dialogue in Twilight... In fact I think this is a major improvement.

This video is courtesy of Bad Lip Reading, the geniuses behind that Mitt Romney parody video and the fucking brilliant Michael BublĂ© remake, Russian Unicorn. Do yourself a favour and check them out.

Badvertising: James Franco Makes Me Sad In This Ad

I saw this on Techcrunch this morning and it made me sad. James Franco is cool. I liked him as the stoner in Pineapple Express. I enjoyed seeing him between a rock and a hard place in 127 Hours. I even liked him as the spoilt brat villain in the Spiderman movies. But this ad for the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is just a bit weak.

What do you think?

Song Of The Week: Ed Sheeran - You Need Me, I Don't Need You

Why isn't Ed Sheeran bigger? He's really good. Well I think so. Definitely one of the coolest gingers I know of. And this music video is great too; even deaf people can enjoy it, as 17-year old Matthew Morgan is really good at signing the lyrics of the song to the rhythm of the music. So much so that I initially thought he was just busting mad dance moves.

Hey?! I'm going to be getting stuck into some Devlin (UK rapper) in my next Song of the Week posts so keep an eye out for those. Dude has ill skillz. Peace.
